UI Scaling Issue

Postby ABtheTechie » Wed Apr 15, 2020 9:51 am

I'm am on Windows 10 Home 1909 using a 1920x1080p screen with 100% scaling and my UI currently looks like this https://imgur.com/a/BSO8QzL

I was using version before and the Bulk Rename Utility banner was not there at the bottom right before. I don't like how it pushes all of the actual functional UI to the left for no reason.

I was wondering if this is a bug or the intended look of the UI. If it is a bug how I could possibly fix the issue since I don't see anyone else mentioning the issue so I assume the problem is on my side. If it is the intended look then please make the banner a bit more sensible in its size or move it to a spot where it's not ruining the usability of the software.

Thanks for the response

I tried this.

The result in making the font as large as possible still has quite a bit of unused space on the right side with the rest of the workspace being pretty unusable since there is little space left https://imgur.com/ub3kNcf

When I made the font smaller the unused space just expanded making the problem worse https://imgur.com/Co5IHUn

For reference, this is what v. UI looked like which I think was the best looking and most logical UI design so far. https://imgur.com/WEEublj

I think there is enough space to put the logo between the "rename, reset, reset preview buttons and the version information button. (indicated crudely in red). https://imgur.com/nKoVt2c

I really like the preview button that was added in the new versions so I would very much like to use the updated version and its features but the UI is really messing with me.

I know this in the grand scheme of things is a pretty minor issue but it affects the user experience (for me at least) so much that I think it is worth tweaking.

I consider this to be a hindrance in terms of usability.
Why couldn't something like this mock-up I did work?
